Mountain Equipment Jacket Sub-Categories

Mountain Equipment jackets can be split out into their constituent types, namely waterproof jackets, down jackets, insulated jackets, softshell jackets and fleece jackets. Each serve a distinct purpose, and provide a unique set of technical properties. Here's our round-up of Mountain Equipment jacket sub-types, what they have been designed to accomplish, and what you can expect from them:

 

Mountain Equipment Waterproof Jackets - Waterproof jackets are perhaps the product group which Mountain Equipment has won greatest acclaim for in recent times, thanks largely to their long-running close collaboration with waterproof technology giants, Gore-Tex. This has given the brand a unique understanding of how best to employ Gore fabrics in jacket design, in particular their flagship Gore-Tex Pro fabric, but also their breathable Active shell and versatile Gore-tex Classic. The designers at Mountain Equipment are aware that mountaineers and mountain walkers, especially in the wilder parts of the UK, demand extreme ruggedness from their hard shell jackets, and as such they employ higher denier fabrics in high abrasion regions, and lighter ones in less vulnerable areas to minimise weight and maximise breathability. Mountain Equipment have also listened closely to the feedback of their sponsored athletes in developing waterproof jackets with a truly ergonomic fit; allowing unhindered raising of the arms and shoulders for climbing, and for jackets to be worn over a range of insulating layers in accordance with weather conditions. The devil is in the detail with Mountain Equipment waterproof jackets, with such features as pocket entries featuring the double protection of waterproof or water-resistant YKK zips, and reinforced internal storm flaps with keyhole water drain at their base (allowing moisture to escape should it enter a pocket). Hoods feature robust peaks to shield the face from driving rain, triple point adjustability, helmet compatibility where appropriate, and are shaped to allow unhindered peripheral vision. Even drawcord design has been addressed so as to avoid snags on kit and terrain features, with Mountain equipment's patented 'Dual Tether Drawcord'. Only through years of innovation, listening to feedback from pros and enthusiasts alike, and a willingness to leave no stone unturned, has the creation of such 'complete' waterproof jackets been made possible by Mountain Equipment!

 

Mountain Equipment Down Jackets - Mountain Equipment pour all of their experience in developing extreme cold-weather down gear for high-altitude into the design of their down jackets. As a result they provide incredible warmth, unbeatable compressability and a great range of user-friendly features. Mountain Equipment down jackets range from full-blown himalayan pieces to ultra-lightweight, packable down jackets for layering, and all contain a minimum down: feather ratio of 90: 10, well above the industry standard of 80: 20. Down fill power is a minimum of 625 across the range, so you can be sure that compressability and warmth to weight will be exceptional, and of course all down that goes into Mountain Equipment jackets must be certified as complying with the standards of their 'Down Codex', a code of practice demanding exacting standards of animal welfare and supply chain traceability. In this sense, Mountain Equipment are leading the way in the field of ethically sourced down, so in a Mountain Equipment jacket you can not only feel the benefits of warmth and comfort, but also those of a clear conscience.

 

Mountain Equipment Insulated Jackets - Mountain Equipment produce a range of synthetic insulated jackets, from sturdy protection for freezing belays, to lightweight breathable pieces for active use in cool weather. Mountain Equipment use Primaloft hollow fibre synthetic insulation in their insulated jackets, which provides good compressability, excellent warmth for its weight, and insulation when wet. Face fabrics include Drilite loft, a highly weather-resistant and robust option for all-mountain use, and the featherweight He30 fabric, which is windproof and highly packable. These are great alternatives to down jackets, being more resillient when the skies open, and excellent used in combination with breathable base and shell layers in a 3-layer system.

 

Mountain Equipment Fleece Jackets - Mountain Equipment bring together a range of fleece fabrics from Polartec, Pontetorto and elsewhere, to produce a fleece jacket range that covers a huge range of activities and pursuits. From jackets for apres-ski or casual wear, to highly technical, quick-drying pieces for action sports, Mountain Equipment fleece jackets provide warmth and comfort for the wearer, whatever their chosen activity.
